Love and Cherish Valentine Printer Tray Home Decor


Hey there Paper Peeps! It’s Ginny here and I’m so very excited to be sharing my very first post for  Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. What a fun adventure it’s going to be for me to create with these fabulous chippies. For my first project I made a very Valentiny  Love and Cherish Printer Tray with lots of bits and bobs and finished it  with well altered chipboard embellishments.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 1 I just love a classic color scheme for holiday decor and I think this fits the bill. There’s just something about black and creme with red. Soooo romantic.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 3This gorgeous set of  Ivy Corners has been finished with red acrylic paint then inked and embossed then sprayed with a shimmery mist.  I wanted it to have a well worn and aged look so I dabbed a bit of gold paint in the edges.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 2I scavenged some seasonal embellies like the keys and heart and butterflies and gave them each a section of the tray being careful to balance the red with the chipboard and metal.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 5The chipboard was trimmed so it wouldn’t hang off the bottom ….easy enough with a small pair of sharp scissors.

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Supplies~Ivy Corners, Words & Phrases 1, Flourish Frame Sienna Mini.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Trim~Red Wrinkle Ribbon. I sprayed the ribbon with the Sued Glimmer Mist to age it and darken it a bit.

Paper from Graphic 45.

To finish the chipboard I used~Americana Cherry Red Acrylic Paint, Tattered Angels Suede Glimmer Mist, Ranger Black Soot Distress Ink, Wow Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Botanicabella Journal with Graphic 45


Hey there Peeps. Sorry for 2 posts in one day…but we have loads of creativity to share and sometimes it happens.  My next project is for Graphic 45 .  Botanicabella Journal.  This time of year it’s always nice to have  personal handmade items you can present as hostess gifts. A journal or notebook is a pretty and practical gift that can be used by just about everyone. They are sure to remember the special holiday they shared with you when they use it. This journal is created with one of my favorite lines Botanicabella. I added lots of layers and textures as well as tabbed dividers to keep notes organized. A little spritz of copper colored spray to bring it all together and give it an antique appearance.

Fabulous Floral Variety Greeting Cards & Kit


Hey there Peeps. Dropping in late to share a fun new Fabulous Floral Variety Greeting Card Creativity kit I’ve been working on. I wanted to have a selection of large subway styled sentiments for every occasion and some gorgeous floral patterns to mix and match to go along with them.   The whole idea behind this variety is that these cards went together super fast and with minimal supplies making them very affordable and easier to mail.  I also really love the large sentiments with the pretty flowers…very country chic. I was able to complete 8 full sized cards with a few papers leftover.

Merry Christmas Snowman Card


Well hello there Paper Peeps!  I’m hoping you all enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving holiday. I don’t happen to enjoy Black Friday shopping so I’m getting ready to settle in to my shop and hopefully get lots done. Yesterday between the cooking and eating and cards I was able to sneak down and create this Merry Christmas Snowman card. I kinda love the country charm of it. It’s not fancy..but well embellished with warm colors and a charming snowman image.

Merry Christmas Snowman Greeting Card 1Merry Christmas Snowman Greeting Card 2 Merry Christmas Snowman Greeting Card 3 Merry Christmas Snowman Greeting Card 4 Merry Christmas Snowman Greeting Card 5I’m using lots of bits and pieces for this and and some papers from my stash.  The ribbon is Swiss Dot Satin in Red from RRR and the flowers are from Petaloo.  There’s a funky little dimensional sentiment along with a perfectly coordinated clothespin holding a stamped tag with a brad.  I also added a few flourish diecuts to give the impression of swirling snow.  Merry Christmas Snowman Greeting Card.

Wishing you all a happy and productive day whether you spend it out shopping or home relaxing and getting your craft on : ) G

Christmas Is In The Air


Hey there Peeps. It’s cold and chilly and rainy this morning. But I have a lovely cup of French roast and the glow of the Christmas Tree to lighten things up around here. Yes…I know it’s early. But to be fair the tree used to have Halloween decorations on it. And when I took them down last night….well the poor little tree was all nakey and sad. So I did what every good tree parent would and dressed it back up again.

I’ve got a sweet and whimsical Christmas is in the Air card to share that might just look pretty good on the tree….however there is not 1 inch of space left .
